Democrats to Nominate Candidate for House

DES MOINES (AP) -- Democrats plan to hold a special nominating convention to choose a candidate to run for Iowa House District 33 which is vacant due to the recent resignation of Rep. Kevin McCarthy.
  
Iowa Democratic Party Chair Scott Brennan says the meeting will be Sept. 4 at the Iowa Democratic Party Headquarters in Des Moines.
  
The legislative district which includes the southeastern portions of Des Moines was left vacant when McCarthy resigned to take a job with the Iowa attorney general's office.
  
McCarthy, who has been Democratic leader in the House for seven years, represented the district for 11 years. His resignation was effective Thursday.
  
A special election to fill the vacancy is scheduled for Oct. 22.
